downhearted

I had a really good day on Sunday and felt quite positive up until 6pm and then after taking the dog for a walk and then chatting to a neighbour I suddenly felt the old nausea, 'fainty' sort of feeling coming on again. Then the next day back to anxiety, so disappointing. I wonder if this happens when I need food as I was a bit late having a meal on Sunday.evening. Can this happen and make the anxiety worse? I wish it would all go away! I guess you all wish the same. cotonroad

I've read on lots of websites that diet and what time you eat at can contribute to anxiety but I asked my Therapist her take on it and she said she doesn't believe that plays any part in it.

I would try to be inclined to agree with her as I've ate for different times different foods and didnt feel any anxiety.

No I dont think so either. It was clearly talking to your neighbour that sressed you out. Dont blame you talking to mine does that. :)

I have the same thing sometimes. I was doing really well until suddenly I came over feeling all downhearted. After that the anxiety gradually crept back in.

I find it helps a lot to eat regularly - especially lunch. If I leave it too long before I have lunch I start to feel worse. Surprised that my appetite has actually got better since I started getting anxiety attacks!

The same thing happened to me last week and I started to think here we go again tomorrow is going to be horrible, but then I told myself no it doesn't have to be it's just a funny feeling you will be fine tomorrow, and it really did help. I'm convinced that positive thinking helps anxiety more than anything. My favourite saying is " Don't worry about yesterday because it's gone and don't think about tomorrow because it's not here" take care xx

Thanks very much it all helps, why do we have this, I'm sure I did nothing to deserve being this way. I have noticed the folk who have anxiety and depression are usually have a sensitive, and caring nature. I think thats why it hits us harder because we are vulnerable, or at least thats my theory XX .
